Deceased 2018 taxes

How long does it usually  take to get a refund.  I filed my deceased Fathers 2018 taxes, mailed on Feb 5 2020?

I enclosed all forms needed.

Thank you

If you mailed in the return, the IRS does ask you to wait 3-4 weeks before tracking the retund. 

 

You can track your return by checking the Where's My Refund website located here

For the status of a 2018 federal tax refund you will have to contact the IRS.

 

Call the IRS: 1-800-829-1040 hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Monday-Friday
When calling the IRS do NOT choose the first option re: "Refund", or it will send you to an automated phone line.
So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info). Choose option 2 for "personal income tax" instead.
Then press 1 for "form, tax history, or payment".
Then press 3 "for all other questions."
Then press 2 "for all other questions."
- When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, don't enter anything.
- After it asks twice, you will get another menu.

Press 2 for personal or individual tax questions.
Then press 4 for all other inquiries
It should then transfer you to an agent.
